Essential Oils and PMS - Sweet Smelling Relief

5 years ago

Today wraps up my weeks long work on helping you find natural cures to help with your pms.  I hope I have been able to share some useful information with you all.

I know I have learnt alot myself through my research :)

Today is all about Essential Oils, they have so many wonderful uses and relief for some of those PMS symptoms are just a small part of how they can help!

Here are some of those Hormone Harmonizers, at the end I will include some blends to help you.

Palmarosa

A tufted grass that grows wild in India.  Known to soothe stress and relieve muscle and joint pain.

Palmarosa can be used during the last trimester of pregnancy, the rest of the oils in this post are recommended to avoid if you are pregnant.

Fennel

The oil that comes from the seeds of the fennel plant is a mild oestrogen stimulant, helpful for menstrual and menopausal symptoms.  Also good for the digestive system and encouraging the kidneys to release excess fluid.

 Aura Cacia Fennel Seed, Essential Oil, 1/2 oz. bottle

Juniper Berry

Known in western herbal medicine as one of the most diuretic and detoxifying remedies.
